Hey Guys!
So today I thought I would write a little post to go along with my latest video that's up on my channel. If you would like to watch it then I'll attach it the end of this blog post or there will be a link to my channel here: youtube.com/BethanAmyJames

Basically, I was invited to an Escentual event a couple of weeks ago for the launch of Benefit's newest mascara - 'BADgal BANG'. I couldn't believe that I got invited to something like this, especially as I'm such a massive fan of Benefit and I was already so excited for this launch! I thought I would tell you a little bit about the event and also do a little review of the mascara too, as it is something from out of this world. (You will appreciate that joke later on in this post haha!!)



As I said I was invited by Escentual, I will put all their links at the end of this post so please be sure to check them out. If you haven't heard of them before then basically they are a company that you can buy beauty products off, a bit like somewhere like Feel Unique. I couldn't believe that I haven't heard of them before the event, especially as they are actually based in Cardiff. I will definitely be buying from them now, as they have some great brands on their website and some that are very hard to get hold of otherwise!

When I arrived at the event, I was actually a little bit early so a lovely lady there who I think was called Ceryn took me on a little tour of their office and warehouse which was really interesting as I was able to see what actually goes on behind the scenes. 1 Prosecco later and after a few other bloggers arrived we were shown into this Benefit Rocket.



The mascara that Benefit has launched is space themed due to it having aero-particles which is one of the lightest known materials, derived from space technology. We were able to try the mascara out and a lovely lady told us literally everything we needed to know about the mascara! I have to say, I'm already so obsessed with it, and I'm literally not just saying that I really do love it!!


The mascara is marketed as a smudge-proof, water-resistant and volumising mascara. I completely agree I've never used any mascara quite like this one. It really does give loads of volume but also adds length too. If you have quite short lashes then I think this will be the perfect mascara for you, as it's also a really lightweight formula so your lashes don't feel heavy but really fluttery and light instead! 
One of my favourite things about the mascara is the wand that it has. It's got a big 'Slimpact!' brush which is meant to get the lashes from root-to-tip, ensuring you coat every lash with the same amount of product. It really does make it so you can grab every single lash, and also the brush isn't too big which means you won't smudge it everywhere! I literally hate mascaras that have a big brush haha, I'm literally guaranteed to smudge it all over my nose!! I actually have a video going up tomorrow which includes me applying this mascara so I would check that out if I was you if you want to see exactly how it applies. It stays on my lashes ALL DAY without any flakiness or breakdown, it will literally look the exact same as to when I very first applied it. This is probably due to the fact that it's a 36-hour mascara, now honestly I'm not sure if I'll ever wear my mascara for that long but it's good to know!
It also has 'ProVitamin B5' which is known to fuel thickness & strength in your lashes. This is definitely a plus as quite often I feel like my lashes will have a beaten with all the makeup I wear haha!
I think it's a great all-round mascara that a lot of people are going to like, I would 100% recommend! I haven't found any faults at all since I have been wearing it. I have heard a few people saying it's quite clumpy on them, however the only time I have found this is if I've applied it over the top of another mascara. It should be fine though if you just apply it on its own which I feel like most people would do anyway.
If you would like to purchase this mascara then you can do here for £21.50 : https://www.escentual.com/benefit/badgal/benefit146/



After being shown the mascara, we mingled with some other lovely bloggers. I met this lovely girl called Kels, she's 'Cutepandaa1' on her social media, so please go and check her out! Also Nia from 'thecardiffcwtch', who I have followed on twitter for a long time so it was sooo lovely to finally get to meet her!


In the place, there was also a massive 'Make Up For Ever' section with literally ALL the makeup, so we were allowed to have a play around with everything. They have some really nice eye palettes out, which I was very tempted by!


It wouldn't be an event without alcohol now, would it?! 'Be At One' were doing some delicious cocktails including this Pornstar Martini which was delicious!!


Before leaving the event I was VERY kindly given some amazing goodies, I mean just look at all of them!! In the video, I made I went through each product, so if you want a little bit more detail then make sure to watch that! Thank you though so much to Escentual, I literally wasn't expecting to receive anything so it was very kind of you!

I think that's pretty much everything for this post! Thank you again so much for inviting me to the event, I honestly had such a lovely evening and I was so honoured to be invited!
Please make sure to check out Escentual here:

Lots of love,
